Morning snow could make commute tricky

We've faced the cold, now here comes the snow.

Today's forecast is calling for Toronto to receive about five centimetres of snow today starting this morning. Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto and much of southern Ontario.

The weather statement warns that road conditions are likely to worsen over the day. Blowing snow will also cause visibility problems for drivers. Toronto could see another two to four centimetres of snow overnight.

"The snow from this clipper will likely have considerable impact on the afternoon and early evening commute home from work," reads the statement.

Some areas north and west of Toronto will see higher snowfall amounts, with up to 15 cm possible in the Grey-Bruce area, across Muskoka into the Ottawa Valley.

The statement also warns that conditions could change and the special weather statement may be upgraded to a weather watch or warning.
